From the HeartMath researchers:- The Little Brain In the Heart - Did you know that many scientists and researchers today, along with neurocardiologists, believe that the heart, which maintains a constant two-way dialogue and relationship involving many processes with the brain, contains a brain in its own right. The heart and brain actually influence one another's functioning, and though not commonly known, the heart sends a great deal more information to the brain than the other way around. The information it sends includes heart signals that can influence a person's perception, emotional experience and higher cognitive functions.
Dr. J. Andrew Armour first introduced the term heart brain in 1991. Armour showed that the heart's complex intrinsic nervous system qualified it as a "little brain." This heart brain, the HeartMath book, Science of the Heart, explains "is an intricate network of several types of neurons, neurotransmitters, proteins and support cells like those found in the brain proper. Its elaborate circuitry enables it to act independently of the cranial brain - to learn, remember, and even feel and sense."
One of the most important discoveries HeartMath researchers made in relation to the heart brain, which HeartMath also calls the intelligent heart, is that "intentionally altering one's emotional state through heart focusing techniques modifies ascending neurological input from the heart to the brain." This suggests that "as people experience sincere positive feeling states, in which the heart's rhythms become more coherent, the changed information flow from the heart to the brain may act to modify cortical function and influence performance. These findings may also help explain the significant shifts in perception, increased mental clarity and heightened intuitive awareness many individuals have reported when practicing the HeartMath techniques."
